Of the three categories of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems in Chrysler Corporation engines, two are discussed here: the ported vacuum and the three-stage systems. The Chrysler heated-air inlet system is also described. The ported vacuum is simple in its setup and consists of four components. Troubleshooting the system is also described. The three-stage EGR system is more complex. It provides more flow when the engine is fully warmed and the throttle is open, but provides less EGR at reduced temperature and throttle opening, when engine performance would suffer under greater EGR flow. The article describes the testing and servicing of the heated-air inlet system used on 6- and 8-cylinder Chrysler engines.
